I see that Khan Academey has helped many asian countries in their studies for certain subjects

 

I think that Khan Academy is helpful and help us get rid of misconceptions and that people are grateful for their help.

Schools have knack for healthy meals

Schools have knack for healthy meals | Poverty Assignment_ Rayn Kang Lam Fong | Scoop.it
In Japan, school lunch means a regular meal, not one that harms your health. The food is grown locally and almost never frozen. There's no mystery behind the meat. From ...

Via Frank Kusters
Rayn Kang Lam Fong's insight:

I see that the people in Japan are are living happy and healthier lifestyles as they eat healthy and organic food. They eat foods that are not frozen.

 

I think that the people in Japan actually suffer from very less illnesses and thus can live healthily, happily and have longer lives.

 

I wonder why the government of other countries do not practice this if they want to save money money can be earned but if a life is gone it will never come back.

If only my school did this.

Bharath Gessian's curator insight, February 4, 2013 9:12 AM

The school students in this school of japan will be happy and healthy. Their school lunch is a regular lunch. It is the one that never harms our health as some food stalls in school are unhealthy and not fresh. This has been widley spread all over japan and it has shown some very good results. This can ensure that students health is always good and my question is that why don't other countries follow japan and do this method. I am sure that it will be really supported by the childrens parents. Hope they bring this aal over the world and Singapore too

The Importance of Drinking Water: Why Not Getting Enough Can Hinder your Results | blog.visalus.com | Poverty Assignment_ Rayn Kang Lam Fong | Scoop.it
Drinking plenty of water each day is crucial to living a healthy lifestyle and it goes well beyond simple hydration!

Via Demarcio Washington
Rayn Kang Lam Fong's insight:

I see that drinking water is a very important thing to do. Keeping ourselves hydrated is a very crucial thing and if one doesnt drink enough water it may lead to death

 

I think that the people in 3rd world countries are the most affected by this issue as there is either no water or they have plenty of water that is not suitable for consumption.

 

I wonder if the government of those countries are doing anything like importing cumsumable water for its people and if they arent what are they doing about these problems?

Essay on importance of class size in higher education | Inside Higher Ed | Poverty Assignment_ Rayn Kang Lam Fong | Scoop.it

"...Do the learning objectives, teaching methods, teacher standards, and workload expectations vary, depending upon class size? Do students’ learning, motivation, and work habits in large classes match those in smaller classes?..."




Via Leona Ungerer
Rayn Kang Lam Fong's insight:

I see that the people have good teaching methods especially on the class size as they are easier to teach.

 

I think that the people are better at their studies as they are better teaching methods.

 

I wonder if the government has shared it with other countries yet so that everyone can be more prosperous and happy.

Obesity is about poverty and cheap food, not a lack of moral fibre

Zoe Williams: It's more palatable to blame diabetes on lifestyle than accept the fact that on a penny-per-calorie basis, a Big Mac is simply cheaper...

Via Cathryn Wellner
Rayn Kang Lam Fong's insight:

I see that people who are poor eat cheaper but healthier food thus they do not worry about obesity. But those rich people can eat those foods that are expensive but also high in fats

 

I think that we should educate people about this matter so that they can help themselves and not get diseases such as heart problems or diabetes

 

I wonder why the government does not educate the people about this . Less money is better than having more money but having more illnesses.

Garrick Tay's curator insight, January 31, 2013 11:43 PM

overty and obesity and interlinked with each other. I think that poverty forces people to be only able to buy foods that are cheap, which most of the time are foods rich in fat. Also, these foods are rich in calories, which provide energy for people, which means the poor will also prefer them to healthier foods as it provides them with more energy. This causes them to be unhealthy. I wonder what is being done by the government to help these people and help ease the situation.

Jewelle Lim Fong Yee's curator insight, February 1, 2013 7:52 AM

I see that the obesity and poverty is linked in someways. People who are poorer will not have sufficient money to consume the healthier choose of food. Hence, they are resulted to eating of cheaper food which are rich in calories and high in fats as it provides them with more energy. These food are all fast food which has less nutrients. This leads to obesity and unhealthy diet. I wonder why did the government not take action to help these people and ease their living situation.

Jasmine Tan's curator insight, March 2, 2013 12:57 PM

See. Think. Wonder.

From this articicle, i can see that obesity is actually linked to cheap food. this is because when one does not have the money to buy food, they will go for cheaper options, but it makes it more unhealthy. These foods can be processed foods etc.

It makes me think that cheap food may not be that healthy to one's health after all, so why buy these foods, when it is bad for health? I do understand that people facing poverty may not have the money to buy more nourishing food for themselves, but what about those who do have money to support themselves.

It makes me wonder how people do know that they are consuming unhealthy food, but still continue on eating it, just because it saves a little money.

Rising living costs exposing more families to poverty, report finds

Rising living costs exposing more families to poverty, report finds | Poverty Assignment_ Rayn Kang Lam Fong | Scoop.it
LIVING costs for some Australian households have far outpaced CPI figures over the past six years, exposing more people to the risk of poverty, a new report says.

Via Michael Chitty
Rayn Kang Lam Fong's insight:

I see that many people are earning not enough money to pay CPI .

 

I think the cause is due to the fact that there is unemployment going on and people are not earning enough money to pay for their basic needs and daily neccessities.

 

I wonder if the government has done enough to solve the problem such as introducing new industries which will mean more secure jobs and lesser unemployment.

Coven Chong Weng's curator insight, February 3, 2013 8:57 AM

I see that one of the reasons of poverty is because of unemployment going on and also the salary being too low that is not enough for the people's spendage of their basic needs and daily neccessities. I wonder if government have introduce new industries to secure jobs and also to lessen the unemplyment rate .

Roshini Sykes's curator insight, February 4, 2013 9:44 AM

the costs for the substantial needs of daily necessacities have been increasing rapidly which is causing poverty to many families. they have been having a lack of a few things that were once affordable and now expensive.by increasing the price of everything like this there is also going to be a loss in the market as many families are unable to afford the high cost. 

Lynn Keok's curator insight, January 17, 2014 4:10 AM

Prices of essential items are rising and low income families are struggling to make ends meet, leaving themselves with no savings. Even though the government is trying to help the situation by offering alternative payment options and reviewing taxation and concessions, will this be enough to eliminate poverty in that country? I wonder how the people who control the prices would react when they hear about the people who are barely making ends meet, and what will they do about it?
